Laser aesthetics might seem like a recent phenomenon, but PHR Centers' staff members have been using lasers to address clients' cosmetic needs since 1981. This gives them experience far beyond what you might expect in their industry. Dr. Amy DeRosa?a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon?oversees the centers' teams of registered nurses, licensed aestheticians, and laser technicians, who work together to treat a wide range of concerns by using the latest equipment and techniques.
By focusing on nonsurgical solutions to common aesthetic issues, PHR Centers can grant clients dramatic effects without the downtime of plastic surgery or the risks of time travel. The experts call on the Palomar Vectus cosmetic laser system to eradicate unwanted hair while cooling the skin for a more comfortable experience, and use Vaser Lipolysis, SmartLipo, and radio-frequency-based Vanquish treatments to contour clients' bodies by targeting stubborn fat deposits. To achieve a more youthful appearance, Deka SmartXide DOT therapy helps improve skin tone and texture by stimulating collagen production, and Botox, dermal fillers, and chemical peels work to soften wrinkles and rejuvenate the complexion.
The staffers at The Makeup Loft want to bring out their clients’ best features with each makeup application, not camouflage them. They describe their makeup style as equal parts fresh and polished, and they take each patron’s personality and style into consideration as they create new looks. They take their services on the road for weddings and at-home beauty parties and also perform hairstyling, skincare, and waxing services.
The Life Time Turkey Day 5K jump-starts Thanksgiving celebrations with a healthy, full-body feast of exercise, with proceeds benefiting local food organizations. Starting on the world-famous Fremont Street, pavement stompers weave past the historic downtown vistas lining Las Vegas Boulevard, home to myriad celebrities, reality television shows, and retired slot machines. After coasting to a finish beneath the Fremont Street Experience, participants gather for a postrace party, where refreshments, music, and chances to win prizes from sponsors accompany huffs and puffs of accomplishment. Additionally, strollers are permitted during the race but must line up behind individual runners and must not be equipped with nitrous.
The licensed aestheticians at Advanced Skin Care customize skincare regimes for every type of client, from those looking for a quick and relaxing facial to others struggling with serious skin problems. Every appointment begins with a consultation, allowing the aesthetician to formulate the best treatment plan and choose the most apt products, be it an all-natural formula free from dyes and perfumes, such as one by Epicuren, or a serum from the stock of medical-grade products, such as one from Cellex-C. The latter product line comes in handy during ultrasound treatments that help stimulate collagen and soften lines, wrinkles, and scar tissues. Beyond smoothing and repairing complexions, Advanced Skin Care’s team enhances eyes and lips with makeup applications. They use products by Jane Iredale and Youngblood, and promise to keep fake beauty marks and cycloptic eyes a secret.
The massage therapists at Nature Cure Ayurvedic Spa have just one problem with western massage techniques: they're all the same. Focused on treating the mind, body, and soul, they understand that clients come in a range of shapes and sizes, bustling with varying energies and ailments. During each ayurvedic massage, the team takes care to listen to each individual's ?prakriti,? or body condition, before applying warm oils in proportion to the body's needs that lubricate strokes designed to relax the body, boost metabolism, and improve the complexion of the skin. In addition to relaxing muscles, the spa also beautifies visages with ayurveda facials that are customized to the client's own skin type and use natural and organic products to cleanse and moisturize the skin.
Traditional red, white, and blue barber stripes accent each of Carson Coonce's three barber shops—from the old wooden sign outside the original 1955 Plymouth shop, to the scissor-shaped awning at the Livonia location—and the interior echoes the same classic barbershop feel. Amid a casual atmosphere, a friendly staff made up of Carson's children and grandchildren and unrelated, yet equally talented, barbers provides clients with a menu of affordable services that range from men's beard trims and hot shaves to haircuts for men, women, and children.
